[ELTeCS_PERU] Spring is here


Dear colleagues

Spring is here and we have started to enjoy sunny days and flowers blooming.

We found an interesting craft activity for kids in Learn English Kids at www.britishcouncil.org/learnenglishkids and have saved it in a jpg format for your immediate use. You can find it in our blog: teach-peru.blogspot.com.

Hope you find it useful!
